What happened when Beckham was hit by a boot in the face". In Beckham made his debut for the senior team and in the January of the following year he signed his first professional contract with Manchester United. That would be difficult to achieve. Retrieved 11 January On 13 January , Fabio Capello said that Beckham had played his last game for Real Madrid, although he continued to train with the team.
The story began in July when a lifelong United fan moved north from Leytonstone to sign apprentice forms for the Reds. The departure of Andrei Kanchelskis freed up a place of the right of midfield, and Beckham made it his own. Bagging the winner in the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea proved he was a man for the big occasion, and the season ended with United winning a second Double.
That season brought another Premiership medal, but in Arsenal took the title back as Beckham headed for the World Cup in France. Facing Argentina in the second round, he was sent off for a foul on Diego Simeone and ten-man England were knocked out. Mocked by the press and vilified by fans across the country, he was welcomed back into the arms of the United family.
Among his many contributions to that glorious campaign were the equaliser against Tottenham Hotspur in the final league fixture, as Sir Alex Ferguson's men came from behind to clinch the title at Old Trafford, and the two corners from which United scored last-gasp goals through Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to beat Bayern Munich in the Champions League final. The following season brought his fourth Premiership winner's medal and Beckham was voted the second best player in Europe and the world as Rivaldo of Barcelona and Brazil pipped him to both awards.
Ever the trend-setter, Beckham introduced the world to the word 'metatarsal' when he broke his foot in a Champions League match against Deportivo la Coruna but recovered in time to score a redemptive penalty against Argentina in the World Cup. The next season proved to be his final one at Old Trafford and after months of speculation, Beckham made the switch to Real Madrid in the summer of but not before picking up his fifth Premiership medal and signing off in style with a final free-kick goal in his last United game against Everton.
Two loan spells with AC Milan followed before he moved to Paris Saint-Germain in January and helped them to win their first French league title for 19 years. He played his last competitive match before retiring from football, Lorient v PSG, on 26 May - also the 14th anniversary of his finest hour in a United shirt, the night when the Treble was won.
